    Keith Whitaker - Cycle of the Gift

    Keith Whitaker is an educator who consults with leaders and rising generation members of families with significant wealth.

    We had an interesting conversation touching on Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, but also on Keiths long practical experience working with the wealthy.  We talk about the cycle of the gift in families, the concept of magnificence, and his work on books with Jay Hughes, Paul Schervish on Wealth and the Will of God and his recent collaboration with Tom McCullough on the Wealth of Wisdom books.



    Keith is Managing Director of Wise Counsel Research.  He is the co-author of Wealth and the Will of God, The Cycle of the Gift, The Voice of the Rising Generation, Family Trusts, Complete Family Wealth,  Wealth of Wisdom: the Top 50 Questions Wealthy Families Ask, and Wealth of Wisdom: the Top Practices of Wealthy Families and their Advisors. Keith has served as a Managing Director at Wells Fargo Family Wealth, an adjunct professor of management at Vanderbilt University, and an adjunct assistant professor of philosophy at Boston College. Keith holds a Ph.D. in Social Thought from the University of Chicago, a BA and MA in Classics and Philosophy from Boston University.



    Keith is one of the most thoughtful people in the family wealth world, and his knowledge of philosophy and respect for tradition made him a real pleasure to talk to.  Please enjoy my conversation with Keith Whitaker.

    John A Warnick - Purposeful Planning

    John A Warnick - Purposeful Planning

    “Generativity is the human impulse to nurture, to do good things for the next generation and to see myself, my life, in a sense, being extended through the possibilities in my children and grandchildren.”



    Today, in conjunction with the James E Hughes Jr. Foundation, I’d like to present my interview with one of Jay’s longtime collaborators John A. Warnick.  John A., as he is known, is the founder of the Purposeful Planning Institute, which trains lawyers, financial planners, trustees, and wealth managers to work with clients on their planning that is congruent with their core values and vision.  He was a long-time trusts and estates lawyer himself in Colorado with the firm Holme Roberts and Owen, where he chaired the Private Clients Services Group.  He left the firm and began collaborating with Jay Hughes and Tim Belber, and began to focus on ensuring that the affluence of his clients was a positive force in the lives of their following generations.  John A received his bachelor’s magna cum laude from Brigham Young University and his JD from George Washington University with honors.



    Please enjoy my interview with John A Warnick.

    George Marcus - Lives In Trust

    George Marcus - Lives In Trust

    George Marcus wrote a book you probably haven’t heard of, but should.  It is called Lives in Trust and it was published in 1992 and is $146 on Amazon right now.  



    Professor Marcus is an anthropologist who studied tribes in Tonga and then applied what he learned to study dynastic wealth in families starting in Texas.  The book has great essays on the HL Hunt family, who tried to corner the silver market in 1980, the Bingham family, who fought over a newspaper chain in Kentucky, a study of two very different family fortunes in Galveston Texas, and an analysis of one of my favorite books, Old Money by Nelson Aldrich.   He discusses the importance of your image of your ancestors and the creation of family ideology, the emptiness at the center of the Getty fortune, and a great essay by his collaborator the late respected philanthropic scholar Peter Dobkin Hall on the efforts of the Rockefeller family to control the narratives told about the family over decades.



    In our discussion today, we talk about his career, the book, his interesting concept that he calls the “dynastic uncanny” and his fascinating dive into the meaning of nobility in the current-day Portuguese aristocracy.



    I hope you enjoy my conversation with George Marcus.



    Biography:

    George Marcus is one of the world’s leading anthropologists.  He is the Chancellor’s Professor at the University of California, Irving, and previously chaired the anthropology department at Rice University for twenty-five years.  He is the author of dozens of books and articles including Ethnography Through Thick and Thin and Lives in Trust: The Fortunes of Dynastic Families in Late Twentieth-Century America.  Professor Marcus received a B.A. from Yale in 1968 and a Ph.D from Harvard in 1976.

    Jay Hughes - Wisdom of the Tribe

    Jay Hughes - Wisdom of the Tribe

    “Families that are failing spend all their time on power.”

    Today's guest is Jay Hughes.

    Jay and I had a deep and fascinating discussion about the development of the elder in a family, the importance of the midlife crisis, and transcendent values. 

    We also discussed many great pioneers in the family wealth field like Joanie Bronfman, Charlie Collier, and Peter Karoff, and we also talked about Matt Wesleys key paper on family culture, which I will link to in the show notes. Jay also mentioned that he is writing a new book with Mary K. Duke and Stacy Allred, and has a lecture course online with David Specht of the Drucker School, part of which I will also link to about the five capitals of wealth.  

    We turned over the new ideas in Wealth 3.0 and Jay had some great insights about how the industry restrains the field and how ideas evolve.

    This is the inaugural interview The Inheritance Podcast in a series in conjunction with the James E. Hughes Jr Foundation.  I’d like to invite you all to join us on this journey of exploration as I talk to Jay and those he has influenced  Next up is Gunther Weil talking about values.



    Jay Hughes is an author, advisor to families, and founder of a law partnership in New York that represented private clients throughout the world, and now retired from the active practice of wealth. His wonderful book, Family Wealth, Keeping it in the Family, has become a classic in the family wealth space, and where he warns that the shirtsleeves proverb is a warning and not a curse. 

    Please enjoy my interview with Jay Hughes.

    Dr. James Grubman - Wealth 3.0

    Dr. James Grubman - Wealth 3.0

    Today we are speaking with once again Dr. James Grubman, an internationally recognized consultant to families of wealth, family businesses, and the advisors who serve them.  He is the co-author of one of the buzziest books of the year called Wealth 3.0:  The Future of Family Wealth Advising along with Dennis Jaffe and Kristin Keffeler, who I have also interviewed previously on this podcast.  I wanted to talk to Jim and get some more color on his attitudes towards wealth advising, the issues with the literature and research in the space, how to escape from a fear-based mindset to one of growth around wealth, and why everyone does not necessarily want to create a dynasty.

    Please enjoy my excellent conversation with Jim Grubman.
